with mitt romney. so the obama camp feels good. the issue would be right for the picking, a state that president obama carried in 2008 with all of the economic problems it should be a state that is easy to carry but it is still neck and neck giving the obama camp hope that some of the key battlegrounds where mitt romney should be breaking through, they believe he is not. >>heather: thank you, live from las vegas. >>gregg: the race for the white house entering a critical phase now. we are approaching the first presidential election. look at the latest fox news poll showing president obama holding his lead over governor romney. we will bring in our campaign insiders. representative john leboutillier, a former republican congressman. and pat caddell, former pollster for jimmy carter. and doug schoen former pollster for bill clinton. doug, the numbers you saw on the screen, since the conventions, the president has gained four and romney has lost two, a swing of six points. >> that is where the race is. there are some polls in the swing states showing outsize leaps for obama the ink th

states. >> now, the romney campaign has already, you know, argued that these numbers aren't strong enough and that real unemployment number is 11% if you count everybody who is not even looking for work. but the bottom line for the obama campaign is his slogan is forward. and the argument there making is he has been trying to dig the economy out of a massive hole. we were facing this economic collapse and he came into office and he has a long way to go. he needs four more years to make the difference that he's -- that we're starting to make now. and that we just need to believe that his policies do make a difference. he can now point to the data to say, look, they're making that difference. >> so that tells me even though we for so many people, the psychological number, eight, not that we're under the 8% mark in unemployment, do the obama folks think we're not over the hump, economically speaking? >> they concede that and that people are still hurting and what matters to people at home is not some number that the labor department puts out, but their own economic circumstance and whether t
in 10 states, a significant amount were undecided. did that 6% look at mitt romney last night and say, boy, this is somebody i feel a lot better about than i did going into this debate? i have to think that for -- some were not paying attention, some were -- for those that were paying attention, the answer has to be yes on that. i think there will be a bump in the polls for romney. 67% believe that romney won the debate. that, by the way, is astounding number usually with the debates, our guy thinks -- our side thinks our guy one, their side of things their -- their side thinks there guy won. >> quickly, glen, explain to a group of people -- i doubt if there is an undecided voter in this room -- [laughter] what does an undecided voter look like? >> they are the guy calling back the waiter in a restaurant because they have not made up their mind for dinner.

the president up 49% to 45% over mitt romney. again, this is one of those states with business background, economic background mitt romney should be breaking through. instead right now he is trailing. not by a lot but is he down here, shep. >> shepard: ed henry live in las vegas this afternoon. wednesday night fox report "studio b" will be live in denver for the debate and then you can watch bret baier and megyn kelly for cleat coverage in prime time wednesday night 9:00 eastern time right here on fox news channel. one of the nation's largest credit card companies has agreed to pay back $85 million to customers for violating what investigators say happened at every stage of the customer experience. according to the feds. american express charged illegal fees, discriminated against applicants based on age and mislead commerce about its debt collection policies. amex is the largest credit card company based on spending it will reportedly pay the settlement to a quarter million customers. in addition the compani' will have to pay $27 million in fines. you may recall last week the feds ordere
. for mitt romney, i think that the emphasis is that he has got to do better in those states. if you look at the rest of the swing states, particularly ohio, you see the president really extending that lead. so in order for mitt romney to have any route to the 270 electoral votes he will need, he has to have some chance to win florida. really just so critical for him. and by the way, i just wanted to say, mary katharine ham said this war on women is all fabrication. i can't believe she said that. if you stop and look at republican platform. no exception for rape and incest. if you think about what todd akin had to say in missouri. think about moments and things, both ryan and romney plan to do --. gregg: todd akin does not stand for the republican party. you know that. he doesn't represent the republican. >> started with planned parenthood. some taxpayers don't want to pay for everyone's birth control and planned parenthood. i don't think that was true. gregg: we have to move on. voters, you know for several years tended to prefer split power in washington, d.c. take a look at this poll n

in the swing state of colorado. governor romney said that he would honor work visas that certain young illegal immigrants obligated through an executive order by president obama. you will recall that the governor has taken an aggressive stand on immigration in this campaign. in fact, he said he would actually veto legislation that provided a path to citizen to some immigrants. governor romney said and i quote, "the people who received the special visa the president has put if place which is a two-year vision 10 should expect the visa will continue to be valid. i will not take something they have purchased o now, live to carl cameron. is this a change, carl, or a change of emphasis for the governor? >>carl: change of emphasis. in colorado, latino are an influential voting block the he has been polling in the low 30's and even high 20 but most g.o.p. strategists says to be competitive nationally he has to get 40 percent of the that tomorrow vote. he is not close. the emphasis is he will not do what in his words he said, there will not be roundups of people being deported. he was reluctant to say
obama in some states and more votes from romney in other states. a wasted vote it is a vote for somebody you don't believe in. i make a pitch that everybody waste their vote on may and i am the next president of the united states. i would do a good job at it. host: richard from new york, republican, thank you for waiting. caller: i appreciate what you did with that one debate when you mentioned ron paul. you and him what had been a good team. the only other choice b3wi esides ron paul is you. they said the less of two evis evil. still an all this promoting the homosexual agenda. we have to have a change. ron paul was the grandfather of the tea party. i hope to see you on the show. i appreciate you running. guest: well, thank you. i support marriage equality. i think marriage equality is a constitutionally guaranteed act, on par with the civil-rights of the 1960's. host: john from illinois. caller: the only problem that i have is about the tax issue. the reason why i say that is our taxes in this country have never been set up to be fair. what they were set up for was that the rich were s
challenge not mitt romney? >>> legalizing marijuana, it's not just a pipe dream in the state hosting tomorrow's debate. we'll look at an issue for a coveting voting block. >>> and ikea is apologizing, now saying it regrets deleting images of women from the saudi version of its catalog. "newsroom" starts now. good morning, and thank you so much for being with us, i'm carol costello, we begin with the growing problem for american airlines. imagine being on a plane and having your seat just detached from the floor while you're in the air. it's happened twice in the last few days on two separate american airline planes. >> passenger seats rows 12d, e, and f came loose out of the floor, and we n't want that thing flying around. the seat is loose and can rotate pretty quickly. >> yesterday a flight from new york to miami had to return to jfk after some seats came loose in the cabin. and last week a seat from boston to miami had to make an emergency landing at jfk in new york after three seats detached from the floor during the flight. affiliate reporter ross colombo from wplg joins us on t
by that fatal attack. >> the race has tightpened nationally a little bit. two of the three battleground states is a statistical tie at this point. yet romney is still considered an underdog going into this. why is that? >> reporter: well, the race has been very, very close all along. these latest polls, especially the nbc news "wall street journal" poll has the overall race tightening. in the battleground states also. except for ohio. and that lead in ohio for president obama is really significant. because ohio is almost critically important for mitt romney to get to 270 electoral votes. the other thing about it is, people are feeling better about the economy. as bad as things are, 40% of people think that the country is heading on the right track. and that tells all of us, especially the polling experts, wendy, that people are feeling better about the direction of the country, and so they have to feel really badly about the country, if they wanted to eject the current president of the united states and take a bet on someone they don't know very well. that's the final thing. mitt romney is way
. earlier this month a cnn poll found governor romney leads president obama among likely independent voters by a substantial 14 points. 54%, look at this, to 40%. he also leads among independents in critical swing states like ohio and florida, and yet, "u.s. news & world report" points out there has been almost no mention of it in the media. i wonder why? >> well, i think what you are starting to see is that independents are largely part of the 60% of americans that think this country is off on the wrong track and right now that they are giving a stark contrast to what this election presents in terms of more government centered country or a free enterprise system that governor romney offers, one that rewards innovation and entrepreneurship. but the bigger thing that you also see in the numbers is, in eight of 12 battleground states the democrats really lost a lot of voter registration. when you look at battle ground states, in 2008, president obama won state like wisconsin by 14 points, nevada by 13. new hampshire and iowa 10 respectively. colorado by nine. all the battleground states are d

the romney camp, as good news, chris, since he is shown as trail anything a lot of these swing state polls as well. >> well, certainly it's not good news if you're president obama. if that's true, if you really have 18% persuadable voters, this comes after fife months -- five months of the most stained, negative attack, most personal barrage against a candidate by an incumbent president that we've ever seen. if there's still 18% of the people that say, well, you know, i'm hope to this guy, i'm open to hear what he has to say, that would include some romney voters who might be open to the president, but when you'd have an incumbent,ou'd expect that much persuade about would be good news for the challenger, that the president hasn't been able to convince all the persuadable voters that mitt romney is, in fact, a vampire. megyn: now, we saw during the republican presidential primary that these debates really can have an effect. candidates really were forced to leave the race based on their debate performances occasionally during that republican primary, so it's no accident that we have both s

. and this in colorado, a swing state, where both romney and obama have been courting the large hispanic vote. that wouldn't have happened if my guest on this week's broadcast had been moderating the debate, but their participation was rejected by the tiny group of insiders who set the rules. that's a shame because george ram mows and maria elena sorena are two of the most popular journalists. they work for the most important spanish language network in the country, univision. i met them for the first time earlier this week when they were in town to receive the emmy award for lifetime achievement from the national academy of television arts and sciences. here's part of the video presentation that introduced them to the emmy audience. >> they're two of the most well-recognized journalists in the united states. pioneers and advocates. for more than two decades maria and george have informed million of hispanics through the popular evening newscast. their brand of journalism is characterized not only by subjective and perspectives, but also by a high degree of social advocacy. in the last three
. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: later, the vice president did some damage control, clarifying his remarks. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported. >> reporter: 24 hours before the start time of tonight's debate late tuesday, conservatives began circulating a 2007 speech by then candidate obama speaking to an african-american audience about victims of hurricane katrina. fox news host sean hannity prominently featured the video as a gotcha moment. >> it contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. >> reporter: nbc, along with several other media outlets, covered the same speech at the time. mr. obama spoke at length about the hurricane response. >> people asked me whether they thought race was the reason the response was so slow. this administration was color-blind in its incompetence, but -- but everyone here knows that the disaster and the poverty happened long before the hurricane hit. >> reporter: late t
romney as the next president of the united states. >>> biden later tried to dig himself out of the mess by explaining that the middle class had been buried by policies supported by the republicans. trying to, yeah, dig himself out of that line. >> joe's always -- he's never dull. love him or hate him, he's always saying something interesting. and headline-worthy, interesting. everyone talking about the video released last night as well. conservative website dug up a video of the president speaking to an audience back in 2007. saying a racially polarizing, racially divisive speech, referenced jeremiah wright, the federal government's response to katrina, new orleans, seven years ago. so that could play a role in the d debait tonight. it may not. it's been the election so far, interesting taped moments. that's for sure. >> it could -- but i think mitt romney in the past has distanced himself away from anything that had to deal with jeremiah wright and connection with obama and his camp said i don't see this as newsworthy and had absolutely nothing do with it. i'd kind of be surprised if t
they will be governing in many states romney would have lost nevada, mexico, new jersey, maybe virginia of course, ohio in this case. so they become really central and will be hard for us in washington to remind ourselves they are important in what happens. one tiny caveat to read everybody assumes they were told the house of course even if rahman loses. i am not so concerned. the electoral campaign point i would make for underestimating the variants of outcomes that could happen in the 48 and 41 race you could see the 6.74 obama if he breaks it up i'm not sure that romney couldn't read it devotee get to 6347 as possible if he has three plants now he could win by six. it isn't out of the question. then the generic goes to the democrats. i'm not sure to read i know the republicans are confident in the democrats don't think they can take it back if you do the math and start losing about by two points you do lose the house. so you could have more turmoil and that would be big. i think that what really lead to the meltdown if they lose a body everyone is assuming in my opinion that of course you can't lose
message for governor romney and i think this gets him as close as that gap in the swing states and makes it a new ball game. >> mostly if you think mostly on the economy that would be really interesting because they have been real tight in the polls on the economy governor bob mcdonnell from virginia, thank you so much, sir. >> okay. >> you can watch the first presidential debate tomorrow night right here on cnn, also on cnn.com, live coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. eastern. >> let's take a look now at the rest of the mornings headlines. a video posted on youtube appears to show american freelance journalist austin tice who has been missing in syria since mid august. a video posted by supporters of the assad regime. the man is blindfolded and clearly in distress. he's being shofred by militants. his family and two news organizations he works for say the man is tice. but the state department says it cannot verify it's him at this point. >>> police in philadelphia are investigating an accident, incident that was caught on tape during sunday's puerto rican day parade. the video shows an office
